The Politically Correct Drink

Politics ruffle my soul. The worst of most people they show. But when I get stressed and uptight, I know what will make it quite right: Please give me Coffee! I need to lean back and breathe slow. For Presidents will come and go. Some are corrupt and hell-bent. I’ll pray they’re removed, but ’tilContinue reading “The Politically Correct Drink”

First Coffee Post of the Year

It just wouldn’t be right if I didn’t celebrate the new year with a coffee post. And, then, since chocolate runs a very, very close second to coffee as my favorite treat, I figured I should include both. So I decided I’d stay in my limerick vein another day, and this is what I cameContinue reading “First Coffee Post of the Year”

Weekly Smile – 11/2/20

I had a few minutes this afternoon — mainly because I’m putting off getting started on my laundry and dishes — but nevertheless — I thought I’d use those minutes to join in Trent’s “Weekly Smile” fun.

Anyway, I’m finally in the mood to do the next post in the series, so here goes. Today, I’mContinue reading “Focus on Coffee – Day 4”

Focus on Coffee – Day 3

Today, I thought I’d share a few vintage 1950’s coffee commercials. Some of the old coffee TV ads were absolutely horrible. These 4 are not some of the worst, but I’m pretty sure the last two would be considered a little too “sexist” to make the grade for today’s TV broadcasting. Anyway, I hope youContinue reading “Focus on Coffee – Day 3”
